And my vote is that we (ipython/jupyter) only deal with the first one or
two at the most. We should offer an official base image, possibly with the
scipy stack (with apt/pip), and let the rest of the community work on the
derivative ones (by community I mean both folks like R/Julia/Galaxy teams
and Continuum/Enthought/any other company).

We can't over-stretch ourselves too much, and we want a good ecosystem of
well-targeted images. But it's useful to have a base one we maintain, if
nothing else so that we understand what problems may be common to all these
scenarios and we solve them once and correctly.
